You will be able to send photos of your canvas and stitch progress to Paula via text or email during class.

This is a stitching and community connection partnership with Needlepoint Now that begins with their Jan/Feb 2023 issue of the magazine with new stitch charts appearing in each issue throughout 2023 (six issues). This project has captivated stitchers across the country and we are pleased to be a participating shop! If you are interested in getting more information, please reach out to us. You will need a subscription to Needlepoint Now for the entire year - let us know if you'd like to order your magazine through the shop or on your own. You can also choose your own colorway - Spring, Autumn, Christmas or colors to match your home decor. We will schedule regular gathering days and times in the shop with Sara to help you plan your wreath, choose your thread palette and answer questions about any of the decorative stitches. We will update this space as more details are revealed - including help on how to self-finish the leaves and assemble your wreath.
